Nominations to Run for the Board of Directors

Any current member of a Students for Free Culture chapter may nominate someone to run for the board. In order to be a candidate for the board, the person must either be a current member of an FC chapter or currently serving on the Board. Candidates are encouraged, but not required, to nominate themselves.

All nominees must accept their nominations if they are to become candidates. The official way to accept the nomination shall be for the candidate to e-mail "YES" (or a similarly clear acceptance) to freedom@freeculture.org. One the candidate does that, we will put "Nomination accepted" under their name on this page. All candidates must respond with "YES" within 72 hours of the close of nominations.

The candidates must also provide a bio and a platform statement by e-mailing them to freedom@freeculture.org. Bios + platforms are due one week after nominations close, otherwise you may not stand for election.

Deadline

Nominations close Sunday, Oct. 28, at 11:59pm Eastern Time.
